  1. Why doesn't after effects auto save an untitled project?

    After effects should auto save any file. I just lost my entire day's work because I didn't have my project saved before After Effects crashed. Why wouldn't after effects try to at least salvage what I had?

  5. Selective Loading of Third Party Apps at Startup in Premiere and AE

    So, this would be an Advanced Option:

    At startup, you would have the ability, via a key-combination, to have a list of third party add-ons and via a set of checkboxes, load or not load Apps you suspect may be creating trouble (ie - crashes or other issues like lock-ups or severe slow downs).

    Normal loading would not see this option. Only after pressing this somewhat obscure key combination would the user see this list of add-ons with, by default, checkboxes already checked, to enable the existing installed add-ons. Then at that point, the user would be able to selectively…

  7. Add auto save every minute like Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro X

    I'm so sick and tired of After Effects crashing and erasing the last 2 hours of work that I did. Everybody has been asking your lazy programmers to fix this for years and it has gotten no better. You need to add auto save every minute so that our work isn't just gone. It wastes so much time and it's unacceptable for the kind of money y'all charge us for this.

  9. Any other window outside AE becomes unresponsive

    This bug causes every other window (chrome, file explorer, etc.) to become unclickable - i.e anything outside the AE window becomes unresponsive.

    This is on Windows 10 with the latest build of AE (17.0.1)

  13. RAM Preview Broken

    In the latest update, RAM preview is broken. It will cache frames but never finish or get stuck locking existing frame. even when cached, playback is not working. I have to scrub everything right now. I've reset the RAM preview pane state but same results.

  15. after effectsのquicktime(.mov)ファイルをネットワークのシンボリックリンクを経由するとうまく再生できない

    使用環境:windows10 : 1903 build(18362.900)
    アプリ:Adobe After Effects 2019(16.1.3 build5)

    上記製品を使用していた際に以下手順を行うと不具合が発生しました

    1:

    %USERPROFILE%\documents\project\mnt以下にネットワークのシンボリックリンクを割り当てる
    
    (UNC path)network1(symbolic link)

    2:

    %USERPROFILE%\documents\project\mnt\network1にquicktimeの動画を出力(AEの設定でquicktimeのアニメーションもしくはprores 422 LTで出力)
    
    出力名 : comp.mov

    3:

    After Effectsで出力したcomp.movを読み込む
    

    4:

    comp.movをダブルクリックで選択してフッテージ内でスペース再生しても上手く再生出来ない
    

    aviファイルであれば正常に読み込めるのでquicktimeデコーダー側の実装の問題だと思いますが、シンボリックリンクが使えないと非常に不便ですので修正して頂けるとありがたいです。

  16. Grid subdivisions uses way more performance as it should

    After Effects CC 2020 (ver. 17.0.5)

    For example: Using a grid line every 10px is better performing than a grid line every 40px with a subdivision of 4.

  17. crashes

    My After Effects (version 17.1.1.build 34) crashes because my OS (macOS Catalina version 10.15.5) is in English while all my adobe applications are installed in Simplified Chinese.

    This issue only happens to After Effects. My other adobe applications works fine.

  18. repeatable bug in expressions

    Below expression in text layer source text will cause instacrash. Seems to be on the 'sort' part but I really don't want to keep opening and crashing to figure out.


    var str = text.sourceText;
    var shuffled = str.split('').sort(function(){return 0.5-Math.random()}).join('');

    shuffled

    osx AE, 17.0.2 build 26, system report attached.

  19. After Effects doesn't RAM preview after monitors have been turned off.

    I'm having an issue whereby After Effects doesn't play or RAM preview after monitors have been turned off then turned back on again (e.g., if I leave my PC over lunch with the monitors turned off). I have to restart AE to be able to play the timeline again.

    It's a simple problem but MAN is it annoying when it happens every day.
